Getting By lyrics

I feel my heart is slowing its pace
I've behaved in a straight line, keep in sight
I know this life is once in a lifetime
But I can't be here just wasting my time

I can hardly breathe, at times I feel so confined
Sometimes it feels like a dream, I just can't open my eyes

I don't wanna die but I'm just tired
Every day I live I'm all inspired
Right now I'm just GETTING BY

I just wanna go but I'm still staying
Running out of hope, but I keep paying
Right now I'm just GETTING BY

The clock keeps losing seconds and minutes
While I sip through the sands of time
I'm so complacent, so sick I hate it
One tear falls down, another one dries

I can hardly breathe, at times I feel so confined
Sometimes it feels like a dream, I just can't open my eyes

I don't wanna die but I'm just tired
Every day I live I'm all inspired
Right now I'm just GETTING BY

I just wanna go but I'm still staying
Running out of hope, but I keep paying
Right now I'm just GETTING BY

Don't know the purpose or the meaning
'Cause right now I'm just living my life, living my life, yeah
How do I break this feeling?
‘Cause right now I don't know what the hell I'm believing

I don't wanna die but I'm just tired
Every day I live I'm all inspired
Right now I'm just GETTING BY

I just wanna go but I'm still staying
Running out of hope, but I keep paying
Right now I'm just GETTING BY

Oh, getting by
Getting by
Oh, getting by
